BELLINGHAM, WA — The Pickford Cinema is about undergo an expansion to add seats and amenities in order to draw more moviegoers.

The Whatcom Film Association, which opened the cinema in November 1998 on Cornwall Avenue, has hired Moceri Construction to begin work on its Dream Space building at 1318 Bay St. The nonprofit bought that building in January 2005.

The new movie theater will have two screens and seating for 238 patrons, a significant upgrade from the current one-screen facility on 1416 Cornwall Ave., which seats 88.
